pmm
stands for Paediatric Musculoskeletal Matters and is a 'free to all' evidence based, online information resource about paediatric musculoskeletal medicine. pmm India is a version of pmm written by a team of paediatricians working in India to ensure that the content is relevant for the clinical context.

pmm India aims to raise awareness about musculoskeletal medicine and facilitate early diagnosis and improve access to the right care, so that clinical outcomes will be improved.
